Think almost any vehicle with moderate clearance can make it to the TH. Rutted in spots and the usual spike rocks along the road, but I found pretty much everything can be avoided. I was in a Chevy Colorado and was fine staying in 2WD. Noted some CUV/SUV types up high as well. Not having been there before, I didn't know what to expect past the right on FS 982 camp spot so I stopped right around there and walked the .7 miles to the gate. Having walked it now, it would have been no problem at all. There is a pull-off just before you drop to the stream crossing. Can probably fit 2-3 vehicles there if everyone plays nice. The stream was only a few inches at its deepest spot.

Pics show a little after the right onto FS 982. First two shots are the same spot. Just a little muddy. Last pic is on the return. Just left the gate and getting ready to start across the stream crossing. Not that wide or deep. Again, you don't need to cross the stream. You can park at the pull-off top-left in this shot.
